Abstract

In principle the colour of luminescent surfaces can be measured in the same way as that of non-luminescent, provided that the luminescence is correctly excited and evaluated. In reality a suitable source may be lacking. A set of luminescent samples have been prepared and circulated for measurement according to different techniques by six European laboratories. The results of the intercomparison are analysed in detail, particularly with reference to the origins of measurement discrepancies. Slight changes in the colour of the samples were observed to take place between the original and final measurements, due to a physical cause. Recommendations are made concerning the production of luminescent colour standards for certification for use world-wide.
